Deborah Drake is incredible! I was first introduced to Deb over a year ago, after she invited me to be a part of her weekly writing group we affectionately called “Tuesday’s with Deborah” or better known to us as “A Writers Support Group for Reticent Bloggers.” She created a safe haven for writers and bloggers to incubate their ideas and share thoughts weekly. Which turned out to be some of the best inspiration, not only for my writing, but for my business as well. I have also had the opportunity to work with her on my first book, “The Art of Working for Yourself” which she was my editor and voice on my shoulder, helping me get out of my own way. I have to thank her for helping me keep my writing voice as the project went along. As tough as the process sometimes was for me, Deb was pivotal in making sure I stayed on track and helped me flush out ideas from the cover to my bio. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. What more can I say, Deb is good at what she does.

I am writing because I want people to know that Louisa is an absolutely amazing editor. I first meet Louisa two or so years ago when - in a bit of a panic and faced with a looming deadline - I needed to find someone to help me tighten up and flesh out my dissertation. Through that entire experience I knew I had met someone who was a truly gifted editor. Not only did she catch things I never would have seen in a hundred years, but she was someone I could bounce ideas off of to get a sense of whether the ideas I was putting forward hung together (this in my experience is rare...) Ultimately, that dissertation won a national award for being the best dissertation in its field - something that I very much doubt would have been possible without Louisa's help. Let me highlight two remarkable editorial traits that really stood out for me during this process. First, Louisa does not blindly read what she is working on. Rather, she develops a real feel and sense of the material she is working with. This had a very real and consequential impact for me - it allowed me to gain a sense of confidence in my work that would otherwise not have been possible. That self-confidence - which she helped foster - mattered when it came time to defend the dissertation. (That is to say, if you are thinking about presenting your work in public, she is an excellent person to work with) Second, she just was a real joy to work with - available, kind, thoughtful, someone, in short, who had a real gift to facilitate intellectual and creative work. In fact, my experience with Louisa has been so positive that I have continued to work with her on a host of other academic projects: papers for journals, presentations at conferences, career and grant materials. So, this is all to say, if you need an editor who is superior, and intuitive, someone who can help advance your work, do not think twice about working with Louisa. This is, full stop, the person you want to work with.

With wholehearted confidence, I offer my recommendation for Lynn Murphy as a writer, editor, project manager, and essential member of any team. I am the editor-in-chief of ALL IN magazine and its website, allinmag.com, and I had the pleasure of working directly with Lynn on numerous projects during her time at ALL IN. She is an enthusiastic and energetic worker, always bursting with new ideas and skilled at communicating them to the rest of the team. What stands out most about Lynn is the way she becomes the “glue” person in any group; she develops strong relationships with everyone else on the team, unites everyone, and is the key to keeping lines of communication flowing in all directions.

I looked for an editor who had a knowledge of the law to do a tech edit of my novel because I’m not a lawyer. Brian Roberts did a terrific job. He more than met my expectations. He unearthed those paragraphs that needed a re-write to become understandable. He gave characters voice in their own dialect. He could be counted on to finish chapters in a timely fashion. I would seek his services for future projects.

Polly was instrumental in helping me get my book all the way to publication. I had never written a book before and I suffer from dyslexia which often creates confusion. She was always patient and went beyond the call of duty by instructing me on how to use the editing program. She was responsive and never failed to answer my many questions. I had a vast number of editors to choose from and my intuition about her picture led me to choose her and she was the correct choice for me.

Judith was both editor and publisher of my book in 2012. Her technical skills for the page were exceptional. She has a fine eye for detail and for artistic look. Her keen sense of story made the book better on every level. The prospect of getting a book to print and to e-reader readiness was daunting for this author. Judith handled it all professionally and with good humor. Tasks were accomplished on time. The finished product has garnered many compliments. I'm very happy to be working with her on a second book.

I am willing to take the time to ensure each student succeeds. I check up regularly even after the tutoring sessions are over to confirm a solid understanding of the topic was developed. I do not do work for individuals but instead guide through them the questions and tasks at hand to ensure they are properly approaching the assignment.
